Good set of 8/6gb sticks for use with 2500k?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm going to purchase my new build soon and just wanted to clarify some questions:

1.Will ddr3 1600 RAM work with a 2500k/z68 combo? I've heard that it's not officially supported.

2.Which would you guys think is the better of the two

or

I'm okay with paying the extra price if the quality is good enough.

You don't need a triple channel kit for it. It's intended for x58 boards. The gskills linked should suffice.
